12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter.
This one had me excited. I love chocolate, peanut butter anything, so this one felt right up my alley. Unfortunately it left a little to he desired. Don’t get me wrong, this brew wasn’t terrible, but the execution could’ve been so much better.
Pour was a deep, dark brown with a thin to nonexistent head that dissipated quickly. Nose was just decadent. Beautiful notes of chocolate and peanut butter that makes smelling it a treat in itself. Straight up homemade pb cup. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t quite follow. There’s chocolate and peanut butter for sure. Even a little roasted malt present. However, the peanut butter was a little too pronounced for my taste. Also, a little less carbonation and a little more viscosity would’ve done this one wonders.
Overall, it’s a smooth brew with an interesting angle, that just wasn’t executed as well as it could’ve been. My first from Duclaw, and I wasn’t impressed.

It was like drinking a Reece’s Peanut butter cup. Amazing aroma of peanut butter and chocolate, and did not disappoint on the palate. However, I’m a big chocolate and peanut butter guy anyway. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, peanut butter and notes of chocolate. Sweet finish and a good ’one and done’ beer.

Bottle pours almost black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, and roasted malts with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice porter. Like a liquid peanut butter cup.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft. Aroma of scratch-n-sniff peanut butter. Flavors of a pleasantly chalky peanut butter, chocolate. Slightly odd aftertaste keeps this one from a higher score, but still a very good beer.

this would have been better if it had been served cooler (my bad) but even so, pretty good, though the aroma was better than the flavor itself.

Brownish-black pour with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, peanut butter and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, peanut butter and sweet chocolate. The finish is roasted nuts and chocolate. Decent overall.
